On House Floor, Congressman Keller says bill would stifle innovation, raise prices, and start the United States on the road to socialized medicine

Washington, D.C.  – Congressman Fred Keller (R-PA) on Tuesday went to the House Floor to call out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s partisan prescription drug bill and said that the legislation would stifle innovation, raise prices, and start the country on the road to socialized medicine.

In his remarks, Congressman Keller said the following:

 

“During August, I participated in a number of healthcare-related roundtables with medical professionals in Pennsylvania’s 12th congressional district.

 

“Those healthcare professionals identified a number of ways to help lower prescription drug prices, including patent reform that would help get generics to market quickly and the need to incentivize innovation as a means to find more cures.

 

“As such, I am disturbed that my colleagues on the other side of the aisle have introduced a pricing bill that is merely for political talking points and, if enacted, would put this country on the road toward socialized medicine.”
